Joining The Dots

Winchell, Alexander

Alexander Winchell (1824-1891) was initially a professor of Physics and Civil Engineering, but later became a professor of Geology and Paleontology at the University of Michigan. He was devoted to the reconciliation of science and religion, writing and lecturing on the subject. In his Preadamites[1175] he located Atlantis in the eastern Atlantic, describing the Canaries as the only inhabited remnants of Atlantis. This book can be read online(b) . An investigation by William E. Coleman(a) revealed that some of Winchell’s work had been ‘borrowed’ by Blavatsky and appropriately modified to support her theosophical ideas.
